I would like to encourage you and support you in your quest to bring healthy change into your life with a raw food and juicing health retreat.  Sometimes it takes some time and encouragement to really launch into a new lifestyle that includes more raw foods and juicing.

While this retreat embraces a supportive diet that may help to build the foundations of a healthier lifestyle, I also give the opportunity for guests to explore their belief systems.  We all have beliefs that cause us stress and we also have beliefs that relieve stress and which are more conducive to positive states such as the experiences of love, joy, freedom and happiness.

I recommend that if you would like to take part in this retreat, to see a qualified health professional first to make sure that your physical health is up to a raw food and juicing diet.  I may also accommodate a retreat for you based upon health practitioner advice if your body is not quite ready for a raw food and juicing diet.

My aim is to make this plant based diet 90% raw using organic or spray free produce (the best and freshest I can source), mostly from local markets.

Personal experiences and research are showing me that health can be boosted by having a diet that is higher in micro nutrients and lower in macro nutrients.  I recommend viewing Joe Cross’s DVD, “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” which explains this well.  (There is a small clip from the movie below that explains the importance of micro nutrients in the diet).

I cater for one retreat guest at a time.  It is a personalised individual retreat focused on your health and personal development. You live in with me and I am available at all times.

Your retreat is private and confidential meaning that your personal information is not disclosed to anyone else except those who you share it with.  It is focused on high quality, professional treatments and therapies to support relieving psychological stress from your life and improve overall health.

The minimum stay is 7 days living onsite with me with follow up support.  A maximum of 21 days living onsite with me with further extensions may be arranged by mutual agreement and is subject to availability.

Juicing and raw food retreats include a range of activities and therapies to assist you including …

  • Life coaching.  We find out what existing belief systems you have that cause psychological stress and your current health conditions.  I can very quickly discover this by hearing some of the stories you tell and how you tell them.  I teach you what causes psychological stress associated with the events that happen in life.  I address the causes of psychological stress from belief systems that are common is society that are based on achievement, fear of missing out, that things should be different and that self worth is measured by achievements and the value of your contribution to society and in your own life, and how it is measured by others.  I then teach you how to neutralise it and grow and develop into the appreciation of life and living.
  • Transforming Breathwork to help release past emotional trauma resulting from life experiences which may still be causing psychological stress.  Bringing them to the surface will assist in allowing new information to be integrated into the mind and body.
  • The Journey” sessions are emotional healing sessions that bring forth from your subconscious mind and into your conscious awareness the relevant issues and past memories which still cause unknown psychological stress in the body and mind.  This guided process is done in a safe and self observing way.  The results can be remarkable with change starting to happen straight away and further improve with time.  (I recommend you read the book prior to arrival although it is not necessary.  The name of the book is, “The Journey” by Brandon Bays.  Most public libraries and major book stores have this book available).
  • Remedial massages.  These are remedial (healing) massages that support detoxifying your physical body and relaxation.
  • Exercise.  It is important to take part in exercise that suits your current health level while you are on retreat.  My highest recommendation for exercise if practical for you is to attend yoga classes at an extra cost per session.  These sessions are highly recommended by me as they support and complement your retreat.  As with my retreats, using the breath is the main focus and so is the practice of calming a stressed mind and finding practical ways to do this.  Yoga sessions can assist you in opening your body and mind to a greater appreciation of being alive.

Your juicing and raw food health retreat is all about you and I encourage you to focus only on you.  Inform your family and friends that you are away on retreat and not available during that time.

My involvement is of the nature of guide, coach, facilitator, supporter and teacher and it is in this function I specialise in. I create a safe and supportive environment in which you can experience emotional, deep level healing and personal development.

My offering to you is comprised of a holistic, multi-faceted approach supporting your healing experience and tailored to your original decision to heal.
